Then you need to go to hereNthen.com ….
hereNthen.com website enables its users to search tweets made in and about their current surroundings on their mobile phone, or on their computer. It also sorts these messages into a timeline to help present up to date and interesting information.
Users can also leave messages about their current location for later users to read. Users will use the site because they can read tweets that will enliven their current surroundings. A user may be bored: be waiting for a bus or sitting in a conference, for example. A user may simply want word of mouth recommendations and ideas from tweeters about their current surroundings. Either way, since Tweets have unlimited subject matter they might discuss a celebrity citing, review a restaurant in the area, or point out anything of interest to the user it will alleviate boredom or provide useful information the user seeks about their current surroundings.
To monetise the site we will display ads on the website that are relevant to the specific location displayed. The ads will appear next to the search results, similar to Google ads. The ads will advertise businesses in the location searched. Another option to increase advertising is to encourage businesses to offer specific discounts or coupons for users of the hereNthen site which they can redeem when they use the service or product advertised.

The business problem is that when a person is at a particular location it can be difficult to find out what other people have said about the location. The hereNthen.com website will give people user generated content about the location they are interested in from either their internet capable device e.g. mobile phone or PC.
The target audience are individuals that are time poor that want information generated by other people about a specific location quickly and easily.
